My opinion: You have done nowhere near the required reading. Go read the sticky, there's too much info that you need to know for me to reasonably post.If years were seasons, this December would be the December of our December.

There are specific stickies on how to calculate your heatload, you should at least get a general understanding of:
Heat load of your parts
Wattage dissipated by a standard 120x3 radiator for radiator comparisons
Know the difference between the classes of radiators
Know what fannage does or doesn't do on the wrong or right rad.
Yep, we can't tell you what you need because you don't know yourself yet.
As a hint, you want as a minimum 120x5 raddage with higher CFM fannage, or more raddage for less noise.I want my old title back.
Old beast is torn down.
Will update later.
